Doggersbank 1920 'Constant', A family endeavour

In the 50 years since Constant, a Doggersbank 1920, was delivered in 1974, the unassuming trawler has achieved great things. At 19.20m / 63’ in length, it began life as the largest Doggersbank built at that time and the first commissioned for export. Over the years, changes in ownership saw Constant journey from the Netherlands, where it was designed by Vripack and built by Jongert, to Curaçao, and later Malta. In 1982 it was sold to Jon and Ann Bowman of Anacortes, Washington, and a 40-year tenure as a treasured family vessel began.

The family enjoyed myriad adventures cruising to Skagway, flying over Glacier Bay, circumnavigating Vancouver Island, and discovering Alaska’s Inside Passage and Canada’s Queen Charlotte Islands. “We did lots of exploring and often went ashore on land excursions,” she says. “All three of us are qualified pilots, so we’d take planes out and fly them over the icy glaciers and big tundra.”
